    i assembled steering shaft... and i am sorry, but i must return to bad things
    gluing place for the supporting bar, that connects shaft with rear wall, is high for about 5 mm. i painted it, but eventually it will be hidden under cover.
    the joint between steering shaft and steering mechanism at the bottom is wrong - missed 5 mm of sleeve that connects them together. you can see that i added the missing part to compensate the gap
    and the cream of the pie - there must be a disk at the bottom of the shaft, but apart from the case that there is a difficulty to insert the disk into place, there is no room for it at all. so i was forced to get reed of that part. at the end, i must be thankful that i manged to join the shaft at all

    the wheel itself will be glued later. the reason - it can obstruct the assembling of other parts, for now
    also i glued the the engine cover, but only at front. rear part will be glued later, when i'll attach additional part to the rear wall

    thanks consistseeker

    when i prepared next parts for the assembling it turned out that a lot of parts are missing:
    72b -the inner side of of driver compartment sidewall (a big one)
    82b - the bottom side of middle mudguard (also a big one)
    74k, 74l, 74m - those are parts of big hatch from rear (on second picture)

    a minute of silence...


    got myself together and continued the project
    eventually, no matter how i tried, the color of the printed part, of the side of driver compartment, didn't match (part 72b that missing)
    so i found the spare color at the end of the journal and made the parts from it

    also i assembled the floor
    as i wrote, parts 74k, 74m, 74l are missing too
    as usual, i cut those from spare color
    i am starting to get used to it and its no god :)

    when i tried to insert front floor to its place, the fuel tank got in the way, so for future assembling - glue it after you put the floor in the place

    i did another push and assembled front floor with all the levers and pedals
    all of those are connected to proper places, as you can see on the pictures
    left pedal connected to gear coupling
    middle pedal connected to air pressure cylinder that responsible for the brakes
    right pedal connected to engine throttle (doesn't seen on pictures)
    left lever responsible for activating tow drum and connected to the end of transmission box
    middle lever, handbrake, connected to two stoppers on shaft drums
    left gear lever connected right to the gear box

    also i assembled rear compartment walls
    the story about missing parts still doesn't end: middle part of front wall is missing. X strips on the both walls are missing too


    bugs:
    part 75b - missing. made from spare color
    part 75g - missing. made from spare color
    part79j - not right, cannot be glued to place, no space for it. disposed

    Thanks for the continuing inspirational work Igor! :thumb:

    I've been in a building slump for the last month or so. Good to "build" vicariously through your marvelous build!

    i didn't quite understand your question, but if you mean how it was assembled so that the weels are moving - it is the design of a model. you can search on previous pages where i build front suspission and look there about how did i managed to make it movable
    om the temporary, if you ask how i did a picture with the wheels pivot, its a simple GIF file, that i did from a few shots with wheels in different positions

    Hello
    some progress with the cabin
    middle mudguards didn't fit well, so i was in need to cut and adjust it properly
    also they weren't in line with front mudguards, but i fitted the step between them somehow
    sidewalls also got a problem. the pockets of left/right signals (red ones) were interfering with boxes inside the cabin. cut and adjust, cut and adjust..
    eventually i assembled the cabin somehow, but i don't like the result.
    from other side, there's no other way, only if i will break half of a model to fit it properly
    i must confess - i lost all the pleasure of building this model
    now i only want to finish it
